Intricate finger-style accompaniment and introspective lyrics combine as this singer songwriter lays her soul bare. Her debut EP covers escapism, dealings after dark and internal conflict. It also gives a nod to the American folk music which influences her style.
In 2015 Kate played a number of festivals including Battle for the burning Lake, 96/1 and Cork Folk Festival. The Tralee songwriter also supported Dublin band The Needables at their album launch, and has supported Marc O'Reilly in Whelans and Dolans. She won the Noel Brazil songwriting competition for her song 'Great Escape'.
Dineen released her debut EP in April 2016 with her first headline gig in Dublin's Bello Bar. The album has received positive critical acclaim being featured by Nialler 9 in The Irish Times and included in The Last Mixed Tape's top ten EPs of 2016 so far.
